THE PAN AFRICAN FILM

Los Angeles, California is not just home to Hollywood. The Pan African Film Festival (PAFF) is gearing up to take moviegoers on a cinematic journey with international film screenings from around the globe. Co-founded by Hollywood star, Danny Glover, the film festival is the United State’s largest and most prestigious Black film festival. Over the years, it has showcased films from all parts of the world, representing such countries as Angola, Austria, England, Bermuda, Canada, Egypt, Ethiopia, Brazil, Kenya, Mexico, South Africa, Nigeria, and of course, the United States. With the pulse on the international film market, PAFF has opened the minds of its audiences, and transported them to lands far away and back home again.
 
For 2013, PAFF has selected a total of 154 films, representing 34 countries — that is, 23 documentaries, 13 short documentaries, 67 narrative features, and 51 narrative shorts. The awards categories include: Best Documentary Feature, Best Documentary Short, Best Narrative Short, Best Narrative Feature, and Best First Feature Film.

How fitting that as Black History month rounds up here in the states, the PAFF has showcased and contributed to the evolving filed of black cinema for over 21 years.
